There are many different types of recreational vehicles to purchase so you can conveniently take a vacation without losing any of the amenities of home. If you plan on owning an RV, you need to secure recreational vehicle insurance as well. Recreational vehicles or RVs come in various shapes and sizes. There are popup campers, travel trailers, popup campers, motorhomes, and many others. Getting RV insurance will depend on the type of RV you have.
The coverage also varies on the policy you have secured and the coverage requirements. So for example, if you consider towing your RV, getting RV insurance is optional. However, if you decide to get a motored RV, you’ll need to purchase insurance coverage.
Another reason to consider RV insurance is when you drive on the road, especially if it’s a motorhome. Depending on the state, you might need to purchase minimum liability so you can drive legally on the road without any hiccups. You can also opt for more coverage depending on the requirements of the lender.
What is the standard motorhome coverage?
Personal Attachments Coverage
If you opt for personal attachments coverage, you will get protection for your TV antenna, awnings and satellite dish. For instance, if you’re driving through bad weather or an area which is too low, you can use this insurance coverage in the event of attachments damage. Be sure to ask the insurance provider regarding the policy limits and the amount that will be covered.
If you are not going to use your RV frequently, you can also save money if you consider storage coverage because it can cut your monthly premium payments. Ask your insurance provider about the additional details of this coverage.
If your RV has been damaged due to an accident with another vehicle, having a collision coverage can protect you regardless who’s at fault. The collision coverage will cover the RV damage.
Full Replacement Cost Coverage
No matter how you take extra care of your RV, there are instances when it can get stolen or lost. With full replacement coverage, your RV can be replaced as this coverage will shoulder 100% replacement cost.
Medical Payment Coverage
If you have medical expenses for both passengers and yourself, the medical payment coverage will shoulder the amount you need to pay. However, you need to ask about the details of the coverage, so you’ll know what your policy options are. Medical payment coverage, while not mandatory is a smart choice if you have a vehicle.
If you have comprehensive coverage, you’ll be able to get coverage for things outside of the collision. This is also known as the “other than collision” coverage. The comprehensive coverage covers damage due to falling objects, floods, vandalism, theft, storms, and other natural disasters. It’s also imperative to know the insurance policy limits for this type of coverage.
Like any other vehicle insurance, the cost of RV insurance premium may depend on several factors such as driving history, how often you use your RV, additional riders, RV class, and many others.
